Greg's appeal.

by Andrew MacGregor

BBC Radio 1: “Greg in the Morning” - 40s

Greg Jamesís 'Up Yours Corona' campaign may have ultimately annoyed rather than defeated Covid-19, but you canít blame a BBC Radio 1 DJ for trying. This entertaining promo shows how listeners hang on the breakfast host's every word, even when other tasksólike a haircut or consoling someoneómay require their full attention.

The castís good-natured fanaticism is a welcome change from anti-lockdown protests and Brexit negotiations, while the now-obligatory references to face masks are handled well by director Andrew Gaynord. Now if James could refrain from trolling coronavirus until our current situation improves, that would be just dandy.
